The Hidden Peacebuilders Network



Peacebuilders network


The Hidden Peacebuilders Network was established in 2018 as an international collaboration of academics, faith actors, practitioners and policy makers to bridge the gap between local and international approaches to peacebuilding as well as between policy, practice and research through the following objectives:

  • Identifying and sharing existing evidence about the role of local faith actors (LFAs) in peacebuilding, including attention to both the 'tangible'/’visible’ and 'intangible'/’invisible’ dimensions of their contribution
  •  Carrying out new research to fill evidence gaps
  •  Translating research into policy and practice.


To improve understanding of the role of local faith actors in building peace and resilience
